Process

  1. Fill the pot with the soil. Dampen it a bit to make it easier.
  2. Set the seeds 4 to 6 inches apart so the broccoli will grow smoothly.
  3. Cover the seeds with soil and flatten the soil a little with the palms of your hands.
  4. Place the pot in a cool, shady place, since broccoli grows in cold temperatures.
  5. Be very careful: broccoli also requires moist soil, so you must water it every time it begins to dry out.
